For brown horses various mixes of Burnt Umber, Burnt Sienna and Raw Sienna or Yellow Ochre work well. Greys (and that is the official term - there are no white horses theoretically ) come out well using mixtures of Paynes Grey and Titanium White. You can either start with a pale grey and paint dark 'dapples' on it, or start with dark grey and use light dapples.
